Helping you to boldly go where you haven’t gone before.
I am Philip Bell, an international marketeer with decades of experience in senior management, now using my unique expertise and a tried and trusted network of partners and contacts around the world to provide clients with the strategic advice they need and the practical help they want to grow their business internationally.
Wherever in the world you are and whatever it is you need doing in whichever market you need it done, my approach is ‘keep it simple’ and ‘attention to detail’ to make business happen and achieve the best possible outcome.
A creative approach to business development and international trade.
I have no reservation in recommending Philip Bell to any other companies that strive for excellence in their activities.Sayed Al Shahab
He’s the most creative person I have met in this country…with real imagination and practical business ideas.Marcel Martin
In my opinion you represent a customer’s CTQ (critical to quality) driven management style…you are obviously very professional.Esther Szabo
A career working with top companies around the world teaches you a thing or two, and the benefits are provided in all the services I offer. On their own or combined they all have something in common because everything I do, directly or indirectly, is done with the aim of achieving tangible results as cost-effectively as possible.
Working with you at home or abroad, my time, experience, expertise and contacts are available to guide you, your actions and inform your decisions. From providing the specialist help you need to address specific issues, to giving you short-term tactical advice or providing you with strategic management input over time.
Accurate information and insight can mean the difference between success and failure. I can provide the qualitative and quantitative information needed to make informed decisions using one-on-one meetings, focus groups, surveys or desk and field research, and provide the analysis and all important professional opinion that must go with it.
Sales and Marketing
Entering a market is one thing but successfully selling products and services in it is another and inevitably requires a comprehensive sales, marketing and communications plan which I can provide, including salesforce organisation, brand and message development, online and offline promotion and effective customer relations management post-sales to achieve your business objectives.
If you need more than just a safe pair of hands to cover a colleague’s absence or manage a project on your behalf, I can bring an intelligent hands-on approach and many years of experience to bare, working inside or outside your organisation, alone or as part of a team, to achieve the required result.
Due Dilligence and Troubleshooting
For a variety of reasons companies can find themselves in disputes with trading partners but when it’s with someone in a different country it can be very difficult to resolve. It’s better to avoid problems in the first place with due diligence to reduce risk, but when things do go wrong my international experience, objectivity and contacts on the ground can help.
